I was excited to hear that Don Henley was going to perform on the Late Late Show with Stephen Colbert, then I watched this. Yawn. What do you think? Text us at 67129. At 1:12 and 2:08, Mr. Henley subtly reveals a glimpse of his political view of a certain presidential candidate.
He's one of my favorite guitarists of all time. Control. Emotion. I love hearing the back story of how a song was created. Forward to 1:03 for the inspiration, or just enjoy the whole video!
Donald Trump used R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)” during his anti-Iran nuclear deal rally Wednesday. Clever, but uh, whoopsie… he “forgot” to actually ask REM for permission.
“Not that juicy”, “clearly written by a lawyer” response:
“While we do not authorize or condone the use of our music at this political event, and do ask that these candidates cease and desist from doing so, let us remember that there are things of greater importance at stake here. The media and the American voter should focus on the bigger picture, and not allow grandstanding politicians to distract us from the pressing issues of the day and of the current Presidential campaign.”
Former bassist Mike Mills "somewhat juicy” Twitter response:
“Personally, I think the Orange Clown will do anything for attention. I hate giving it to him.”
Lead singer Michael Stipe’s “no longer juice, now complete liquid” response:
“Go [screw] yourselves, the lot of you—you sad, attention grabbing, power-hungry little men. Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.”
Chuck Ritz is a man I'm proud to know. For the 5th year in a row, he's keeping his promise to "never forget". He came by the studio to talk about this year's "Spirits In The Night 9/11 Candlelight Vigil". Details are below the interview:
